Well, part of the problem is we've been taught to believe that our ancestors were either delusional or grasping at straws (and of course, the all
popular - stoned on magic mushrooms). But if they were witness to advanced technology, among other things, this would certainly translate to some of
the passages you read in the ancient texts.
For example, in the hindu texts, the vimanas and the weapons employed by the "gods", are certainly advanced for the time frame. Here are a few
Gurkha, flying in his swift and powerful Vimana, hurled against the three cities of the Vrishnis and Andhakas a single projectile charged
with all the power of the universe. An incandescent column of smoke and fire, as brilliant as ten thousand suns, rose in all its splendor. It was the
unknown weapon, the iron thunderbolt, a gigantic messenger of death which reduced to ashes the entire race of Vrishnis and Andhakas.
The corpses were so burnt they were no longer recognizable. Hair and nails fell out. Pottery broke without cause... Foodstuffs were poisoned. To
escape, the warriors threw themselves in streams to wash themselves and their equipment.
I used H1 to quote it instead of EX because people appear to ignore the smaller texts in EX and Quote boxes. Here's the link
Here's another from the same link:
The Saubha is at once Salva's city, flagship, and battle headquarters. In it, he can fly wherever he chooses.
However, the Saubha becomes invisible. Krishna then loads a special weapon, perhaps an ancient version of a smart bomb? I quickly laid on an arrow,
which killed by seeking out sound, to kill them... All the Danavas [Salva's troops] who had been screeching lay dead, killed by the blazing sun like
arrows that were triggered by sound.
However, the Sauba itself escaped the attack. Krishna fires his "favorite fire weapon" at it, a discus shaped like the "haloed sun". The discus
breaks the Saubha in two, and the city falls from the sky, killing Salva. This is the end of the Mahabharata.
A single weapon capable of destroying three cities at the same time?
There's more, in other ancient texts, as well. If these are just hallucinations, they are certainly futuristic hallucinations.
